That good ol' 6th Amendment right…

Jenifer Langosch/

… yes, the one about the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury. Well, meet your newest Allegheny County juror. It’s not exactly the best timing with the Hot Stove simmering and about to get much more interesting in the coming days, but as it does, I’ll be spending my days in the courtroom for the next week. Yes, a week. (insert collective sigh here)

That said, I probably can’t get away with blogging or twittering during a trial, so I apologize ahead of time, but neither will likely be updated much during the day. Breaking news will be covered on the main site by someone filling in for me. And if any news surfaces during the day that warrants any follow-up here or on the main site, I’ll take care of that in the evenings.

Sorry about the timing. But hey, if it makes you feel any better, my $9/day jury stipend didn’t come close to covering the $24 parking fee I incurred today. Must come up with a parking Plan B for tomorrow…
